A young man died after a condom machine he was trying to break into blew up in his face.
The 29-year-old had rigged the contraception dispenser in the German town of Münster with a homemade bomb so he could blast it open and steal the change inside.
But as it exploded, a steal shard hit him in the face, knocking him unconscious.
His two accomplices, aged aged 27 and 29, took him to hospital but he died of his wounds shortly afterwards.
At first the men claimed their friend had injured himself after falling down the stairs, before one later admitted to the connection to the exploded machine.
Police told The Local.de the men did not take the money or condoms which had poured from the machine following the explosion.
Instead officers found its contents scattered on the street after they were alerted by local residents.
